2018 Trans-Am Proxy Rules!

Postby dreinecke » Sat Sep 30, 2017 8:36 pm

Please NOTE: I have loved coordinating this series for the past two years. We've seen some super cool entries and have experienced some very exciting racing on some great tracks. However, I want to bring this series a little closer to my original intent: making this series fun for ALL racers - newbies through experts. To do so, I am making some two significant changes to specs; here is a brief overview:

To accommodate new T/A cars from Scalextric - a 21.5k motor is now allowed.
All chassis MUST be mounted like an RTR car - meaning screws through the chassis to body mounting points. No pins through the body, Velcro, etc.

Finally, Slot Car Corner is coming on board in 2018 as an OFFICIAL Sponsor! Thank you gentlemen!!!

Please see the "OFFICIAL" rules on the main thread.

Cars will be due 02/03/2018. Once the entry list is set, I'll provide the shipping address.

I'm in again. Number 27 of course. And of course we would love to host a round again.

Questions :

Weight inside or outside?
Tires side to side or contact patch 9.5mm?
Motor 21k by manufacturer or dyno check?
Fantasy liveries?

Best regards.

Hi David, I will enter a car in the O2 category and put a blank number panel on so you can select the appropriate race number. Now to avoid confusion in dates are you talking the 2nd of March or Feb 3rd.
I will also host again at Canfield Green.
All the best
The future is in our hands, choose wisely
